Fixing up the Farmhouse

About Mikles Family Farm

by miklesfamilyfarm on July 11, 2014

Miklesfamilyfarm.com was inspired by my grandparents’ home out in Oklahoma. I grew up in a city but my parents would take me to visit there often and it was like a whole new world to me. I enjoyed the slower space, fresh air, and rustic environment just felt like home to me. I wanted everyone to be able to experience that same feeling as well. No matter if you live in a big city, you can still experience the small town lifestyle. Over the years I developed a passion for rustic home renovations, and I want to share my stories of triumph and sometimes failure to inspire you to improve your home as well.


The farmhouse living lifestyle is synonymous with a much simpler time. It brings us back to a time when we weren’t focused on constantly being connected to the entire world, but just focusing on the things that were truly important in life. Whether you are looking to make a small change to your home or a total refresh, we hope our ideas can bring happiness to your house. We hope you enjoy our posts and come back to visit us.

Wooden Counter-tops

While the rest of the world is jumping on the granite bandwagon, go for a butcher block counter-tops and painted cabinetry.

Exposed Cabinets / Shelving

This is a classic design that most homeowners may be apprehensive to try. But this is a great way to add a statement while maximizing space. This is a quick and easy addition; simply add shelving and simple white dinnerware.

Farm Sink

You may have noticed that the classic farmhouse sink is making a comeback. These are becoming more popular not only for their appearance but also for their practical and functional purposes. Farm sinks are traditionally very deep which allows for more usage. Also, a divider can be installed which allows for a double sink bowl to separate your dishes.

Rustic Kitchen Table

Whether it is painted, stained, dented, or chipped, you can allow your kitchen table to make a statement. Perfect and pristine tables are so out. You can even build one of these yourself! Let your kitchen have charm with a well-loved table that your family will gather around and enjoy for years to come.
